Story

I am thrilled to be working with The National Autistic Society to hold a series of Jamie's Concerts across the UK over the coming months.  On first moving to the UK I lodged with the family of a child with severe autism, Jamie. Jamie is a lively and handsome boy who due to his autism has never spoken. Over time I became acutely aware of the demanding lives of those who care for children with autism and the seeds of the Jamie's Concerts idea were planted.

Jamie's Concerts are designed to fit perfectly into the demanding lives of parents and carers like Jamie’s parents.  They generally start at 11am and end before the school day is over. After the concerts the audience have a chance to chat together in a relaxed atmosphere. The setting provides a rare opportunity for families and carers to get together and can be a welcome respite from the demands of caring for a child with autism. Children with autism are very welcome at the concerts but I do understand that not all are happy in such an environment and so that decision is left to the discretion of parents and carers.

The National Autistic Society is the leading charity, supporting and campaigning on behalf of people with autism and their families across the UK.  But as a charity, rely on donations and fundraising to continue to provide the support that people affected by autism need.  You can help to make a massive difference to the lives of people living with autism by donating to Jamie’s Concerts.

Thank you for your support
